Sigh. This was a sweater knitted from the collar to the armpits, and most of a sleeve.
On the bright side, I love the yarn and I get to knit it again.
I love top-down sweaters because you can try them on as you go and see how they fit. This one, I am sad to say, was not going to fit in a way I liked. The collar just didn’t work for my face and proportions, and I never would have worn the sweater if I’d finished it.
Now the yarn gets a nice warm bath and a second chance to turn into something I will actually wear.
